Hello and welcome to the latest installment of my Songs Of The Week! If you’re unfamiliar with this section, it’s where I let you guys in on what I’ve been listening to each week. Despite it being Megadeth week, I have somehow managed to listen to some not Megadeth songs! These are possible the only ones though; thankfully they’re amazing. We’ve got a couple of unsigned bands, and some new tracks from well established bands, and an early contender for my song of the year!
Fin Henderson – At Least We’ll Sing
What is there to say about this song! It really grabs you right from the start with an impressive a cappella intro provide a great insight into Henderson‘s incredible musical talent. This then builds into the verse without losing the a cappella parts; a challenging feat that is pulled off fantastically, giving really great harmonic depth the track. As it’s built around a variety of voices, each with their own line, they interact interacting in perfect polyphony, so the result in a lot of different melodies going in different directions, like in classical music, so there’s a lot more happening musically compare to in a guitar based backing when at most it can maybe play two lines through use of chords. When Finn‘s lead vocal enters you’re hit by a distinctive and outstanding voice; it provides a memorable lead melody, along with insightful and meaningful lyrics. I really love how intricate the backing vocals in the chorus are as well; it’s just an all round great track!
